    i LOVE Ryan, but they need to have new actors/actresses for this movie.

  • sookie

    Hi Ryan.. long time no see..

  • sj

    @ss: Yes!! well i thought of Michael Fassbender .. but yeah i agree they need an unknown actor!!

  • ha ha


    ITAWY, I think they will hire 2 very good looking newbies, dont think they will use stars.

  • Love Ryan but not for Fifty

    I love Ryan Gosling — he is an amazing actor and a fine specimen of a man. But I CANNOT see him as CG in Fifty Shades of Grey. MATT BOMER is the man for that role. I mean…just look at him.

  • Ryanftw

    YES YES YES YES YES for Ryan as Christian. Choose a fresh face for Ana but Ryan all the way!!! Anyone but Somerhalder.

  • HarryStyles For ChristianGrey

    i think Alex Pettyfer would be perfect

  • andy

    HE IS HOT BUT CHRISTIAN GREY IS IAN SOMERHALDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Tom Cruise or Ryan Reynolds

  • BEAN

    He’s no where near sexy or mysterious enough to be Christian

  • dd

    I like Ryan but this role was made for ALEXX SKARSGARD!!!!!!!!!!!! If you have seen True Blood you know he is PERFECT for this!!!!!!!

  • Liz

    Alexander Skarsgaard and Kristen Stewart are my favourites.

  • Uhmm


  • Shmemily

    Matt Bomer = Christian Grey, hands down! Ryan Gosling is too cute for the role, Ian Somerhalder is too desperate for the role, and just not businessy enough, and Alex Pettyfer is too young. Matt Bomer is perfect

  • tara

    He would never do it. So it’s pointless to think about it.

    Come on…that movie isn’t exactly in his league. He’s an oscar-nominated actor.

  • ofhie

    KStew is definitely Ana
    Michael Fassbender all the way as Christian Grey.

  • Pirlo

    Oh dear. Hollywood will make a movie about a porn collection book? lol

  • malei02

    Please-e-e Ryan looks like a nice guy from next door look. U want someone that is sexy, provocative, mysterious, bold, piercing looks/eyes, f*** me look! Matt Bomer is a good suggestion.

  • Anabell2007

    Any A list actor is the wrong choice for Christian and Ana. They need new faces who are young. The producers would be careful to stay true to the story as much as possible.

    The supporting characters are also critical to getting this right.
    So many articles focus on the two main charactors but what about Elena and Taylor. These supporting actors are just as important to keep the chemistry throughout the trilogy.

    I hope the producers don’t make this a who’s who in Hollywood, that is the worst idea for this film.

  • OS

    I thought the character was straight.

  • malei07

    I love Ryan Gosling but Matt Bomer is the ONEEE!!!!!!!!! he should play Christian Grey definitely!

  • charlene

    kristen stewart? hell no.
    if i had to pick,
    matt bomer-christian
    emmy rossum-ana

    but i agree with the movie casters to pick new, young fresh faces.

  • Bella

    Henry Cavill. & Please not K Stew as Ana.

  • kiki

    Alexander Skarsgard= too old, big forehead. hes already 35 he’ll be 40 by the third movie for sure.
    Ian Somerhalder= too old, too short, will be in late 30s by the third movie.

    personally, i believe for christian grey age wise and physically i would say Alex Pettyfer. I think he could pull of the good and bad side of Christian.

  • jiji

    Aww he loves that t shirt, Ryan dear, it’s starting to rip under the arms. Time for a new one luv.

  • Hanna

    Ryan so totally over rated! Henry Cavill or Matt Bomer would be perfect but both too good at their craft to take this crap.

  • tGinette

    Ryan is one of my choice for Grey’s character…but i mostly prefer CHRISTIAN BALE for the role. he’s a perfect Christian Grey :-D

  • Mira

    So many gay fans as usual :)

  • LOL Says Who?

    These posts are so funny – who says he is the favorite? I think they should give it to poor Ian Somerhalder, he is so desperate for it he has it planted everywhere and he needs the work although he bombed in films a few years back. His CW days are numbered.

  • tasha

    I love Ryan! However, I’m currently reading the book and Matt Bomer IS Christian Grey. No doubt about it! Hey Hollywood, are you hearing this? If you want a successful franchise movie, Bomer is your guy!

  • tasha

    Since we’re talking about “50 Shades of Grey”, who do you think should play Anastasia Steele?
    My bet is on Elizabeth Olsen. Any thoughts?

  • JadeKincaid

    I don’t want to him to take this part unless they hired some really good directors for this film. But other than that, Ryan is a darn good actor and has the versatility to pull it off. People says he has the boy next door look must have not seen his other work besides the Notebook. He was so freakin’ hot playing a cunning psycho in Murder by Numbers with Sandra Bullock. The part where he licks her face during the standoff scene? Uh, yeaaah….. So he’s definitely has an edge to him to pull off the role.

  • tasha

    Please not Kristen Stewart as Ana!!!!!!!!!!!
    How the hell is she the highest paying actress???? WTF!

  • George V

    Tom Cruise…Matt Bomer…. or Neil Patrick Harris? Alex Pettyfer for Ana would be perfec!

  • reeven

    Tom Welling!!!!!!!
    He is hot and gorgeous so……
    as Anastacia….hmmm that is a tough one, any body but Kristen

  • http://@samjewell Sj

    It should be a) Henry Cavill b) Taylor Kitsch or c) Charlie Hunnam (dyed brown). I would be mad if it was Gosling though, that man can pull anything off.

  • Dd

    Matt Bomer & Emma Stone.

  • Laura

    I think Matt Bomer would be PERFECT for CG. For Ana I liked the idea of Emmy Rossum, not known enough and fits the physical description. I guess Elizabeth Olsen also, but she’s been making a lot of Indie flicks I don’t see her trying to take on this edgy role. Not too sure about Bomer either but he really would be perfect for it he’s just delicious.

  • Guy

    It would had been much nicer if Ryan wore a pair of tight jeans and shirt…therefore the statement could had read, “Ryan shows off his buff biceps and tight buttocks as he leans against a recycling bin at a friend’s house on Thursday (July 12) in Los Angeles”.

  • June

    @Laura: Could you stop using a name like “Laura”? You are Rob or something

  • LS

    Please remember that Christian Grey is only 26 in book. Matt Bomer 34 now too old. So is ALexander Skarsgard and Ian Somerholder. They are also too old. Gosling is too old as well. I think they should get an unknown or maybe Henry Cavill.

  • Rance

    @George V: I WANT that!!!

  • Jenny

    Henry Cavill – he has no problem doing bedroom scenes (have you seen The Tudors?!).

  • Kim

    Sorry but I’m guessing Ryan wouldn’t touch this script with a 10 foot pole unless it was to burn the script. Just doesn’t seem like the type of film he’d do.

  • Anon

    Dear God- He is HAWT

  • Louanne

    @JadeKincaid: “I don’t want him to take this part unless they hire some really good directors for this film.” I could not agree with you more! I haven’t read the books, but I read that their literary quality is terrible. I also read the description of the male character and I would absolutely love to see Gosling playing a character like this (I also thought about his role in Murder by Numbers and the scene where he licks Sandra Bullock’s face). He would do a freaking amazing job. But, I fear that unless they hire a great scriptwriter and director, the movie will not be at his career level. He is too good as an actor to be put at a “Twilight fans’ level”. Movies with sex have to have a very high quality, like “Shame” with Fassbender… one of the best movies of 2011, in my opinion (together with Drive and Melancholia).

  • Sean

    Brad Pitt

  • Mya

    Not Ryan Gosling because I think Rachel McAdams would be perfect for Anna, and if he was Christian Grey, that would just be weird …
